John Strait. ADORNMENT DUE TO THE HOUSE OP GOD. Our Lord came upon earth in all humility and purity. He could have been born in a palace instead of a stable, but He pre,- ferred the stable among the beasts, the manger for his couch, straw for his pillow, all for our example, to teach us true humi- lity; but, whilst He deigned to place Himself in such extreme poverty, He did not command us to let Him remain in that humble state. Many men of dstinction, even some of our Presidents, were born in quite plain and humble circumstances, hut they did not close their lives in that way. They were honored in all places and at all times. They were placed in the White House in Washington, in style and with all comforts, as a ruler of the United States. We should then honor our Lord the Ruler and Creator of the entire world, by making our churches a becoming abode for Him to dwell in, by adorning it with all possible grandeur. He has made all things for our pleasure, comfort and admiration. Then most cheerfully should we share with Him. O, cOuld the Ciborium in the tabernacle in which His sa- cred body rests form the rising to the setting of the sun, be one made of precious jewels. Noth- ing is too grand or costly for our Lord. He deserves all this and hearts that truly love Him long to lavish upon Him in this man- ner. Many persons seem to take no pleasure in making such strong demonstration of love and honor due their God; they think a plain dingy looking church will answer all purposes to pray in; they all say one does not ask for grandeur. It is true He does not, He leaves all that to our love and generosity. As He has made all things, so He has in His pow- er to make His d welling place here on all grandeur, all magni- ficence. But He leaves that for us His children to do to prove our love and gratitude for all His goodness to us. One glance from His eyes takes in all He has cre- ated, all the beauties of nature. A simple little fragrant flower culled and placed at His sacred feet as a mark of our love and appreciation, are very pleasing to Him. Their beauty and fra- grance are, as it were, prayers of love ascending up to Him. In heaven now, He sits upon His throne bestowing upon us many blessings and waiting for our acts of love and gratitude in re- turn. IN DIVERS TONGUES. An immigration official during the course of a lecture one even- ing was exhibiting types of ar- rivals at the Ellis Island immi- gration station in New York. He told of a fellow on a ship one day whose face and make-up were such that the inspection of- ficers could not for the life of them determine the particular country whence he came. He was accotsed in turn by linguists in Italian, German, Slovak, Scan- dinavian, Greek and Finnish. Not less than twenty-two differ- ent tongues and dialects were tried on the new arrival, who looked as though he might have hailed from any one of the coun- tries where those languages are spoken; but he didn't saya word, just stood and stared at the offi- cers who were interrogating him. Finally he turned to them and exclaimed: "For the love of heaven, is there anybody around here who can speak English? ' We once heard Judge A. M. Keiley narrate a somewhat simi- lar experience he had while on the bench in the International Court at Cairo. After a witness whose nationality was a puzzle had been addressed in French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Italian and Arabic, and failed to make any response except to in- dicate by shaking his head that he did not understand. Judge Keiley turned to a brother Judge, and remarked sotto voice: ''I wonder what language the idiot speaks anyhow?" "The same as yourself, yer honor," came from the witness in the broadest Tipperary brogue. THE DOCTOR'S MISTAKE. A doctor who thinks that all the ills of the human race can be traced to the drinking of coffee and tea entered a restaurant re- cently and seated himself oppo- site an Irishman who was busy- ing himself trying to dispose of a steaming cup of coffee. ' 'How often do you use coffee?" queried the doctor. "I drink it morning, noon and night, sir." "Don't you experience a slight dizziness of the brain on retiring at night?" "Indeed I do, sir, very fre- quently." "You have a sharp pain through the temples and in and around the eyes?" "Right you are," replied the the Irishman. "You are possessed with a drowsiness when you awake in the morning, and your head of- ten aches and feels very heavy." "Right again," answered the Irishman, still sipping his coffee. "Well then," exclaimed the doctor, sitting erect in the chair, "aren't you convinced, that the coffee is the cause?" "Is that so?" said the Irish- man in astonishment. Faith, I always thought it was the whis- key." PAYING FOR SILENCE. "Talk about having to pay every time you turn around," said Congressman Seed graft as he twisted his unlighted cigar be- tween his teeth and elevated his feet upon a brass cuspidor in one of the lobbies at the capitol. "I struck the worst case of it in my last campaign that I ever found. I was making a long journey across the country where there were practically no members of my party living. I had to put up at a small hotel run by a man who was red-hot for my oppo- nent. His accommodations were fair- ly good except that my room was near a stable and the cow dis- turbed me for a while; but when I complained the landlord soon silenced her. The next morning when he presented my bill, I found an extra 50 cents charged for hay beside what my horse required." "Here,' I said. 'What does this 50 cents worth of hay mean? I did not order it." "No!' the old fellow replied, 'but you said the noise from the stable kept you awake and I had to give hay to the cow to keep her quiet."
